To quote Robert Frost, “Good fences make good neighbors.” Whether you agree with the famous poet or not, fences offer many benefits. They provide security, establish boundaries and add a nice aesthetic to your property. And while there are many types of fences such as chain link and wood, here are six reasons why you should consider upgrading your fence to an iron fence.
Iron fences are strong
You can’t deny the strength of iron and you won’t find a sturdier fence than one made of iron. While they are not for people who crave privacy, iron fences are great for those who are looking for a fence to provide an added layer of security.
Iron fences are durable
Along with being incredibly strong, iron fences also are amazingly durable, which is important in a climate such as that found in Minneapolis and St. Paul. You won’t have to worry about rotting or deterioration like you do with a wood fence.
One thing to keep in mind with an iron fence, however, is that they do need to be repainted from time to time because it’s the paint that protects the iron from rust. Still, a small price to pay for its durability.
Iron fences are beautiful
Let’s face it; iron fences add beauty to whatever surrounding they are in and oftentimes leave a lasting impression. There is no doubt that an iron fence will add to the property value of your home.
Iron fences can be custom made
Iron can be formed into many patterns and looks so when you work with an iron fence, you have total control over the look and feel. Custom-made iron fences are often the envy of the neighborhood!
Iron fences are eco-friendly
Sure, wood fences are eco-friendly but did you know iron fences are, too? Not only do they last for decades, but also the material can be reused (antique and vintage stores love the iron fences and railings) as well as recycled for scrap metal.

For homeowners who invest the time, energy and money into landscaping their yard, iron fence provide a beautiful backdrop.
